One of my favourite summer drinks to get at Starbucks is the Tazo Passion Tea Lemonade, and since I love incorporating tea into baked goods I decided to come up with this recipe for a copycat biscotti!

Yields ~8 biscotti

2 tbsp ground flaxseed
3 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp water
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tazo Passion tea bags (cut open)
1/4 cup canola oil
2 tsp lemon zest

  1. Preheat oven to 325F.
  2. In a small bowl combine the ground flax, lemon juice, and water and set aside for a few minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl combine the dry ingredients, including the sugar. In a separate larger bowl mix together the flax mixture, oil, and zest.
  4. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a spatula or wooden spoon, careful not to over mix. Sprinkle in the loose passion tea and gently fold into the dough.
  5. Place the dough on a parchment lined baking sheet and with wet hands mold into a flattened log shape.
  6. Bake for around 30 minutes until it is slightly firm and light golden. Remove from oven and let cool, then transfer to a cutting board.
  7. Using a serrated bread knife slice the log into 3/4" or 1" slices.
  8. Place the sliced biscotti back onto the baking sheet and bake for around 15 minutes. (adjust the baking time depending on how crisp you want them!)
  9. Once out of the oven put the biscotti on a rack to cool.
  10. In a bowl stir together the icing sugar and steeped tea for the glaze. Add food colouring if desired.
  11. Once the biscotti is cooled, drizzle with glaze and serve!
